Grand Marnier was created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. It is a blend of fine cognacs and distilled essence of tropical oranges. Slow aging in French oak casks rounds it out and separates it from other “triple-sec” like Cointreau. The Cuvee du Centenaire was launched in 1927 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the House of Grand Marnier, it is a balance between essence of tropical oranges and cognacs mainly from: Petite and Grande Champagne. The Cuvee du Cent Cinquantenaire was launched by Jacques Marnier Lapostolle, the company's CEO, in 1977 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the House of Grand Marnier. This blend was created for cognac enthusiasts. It combines essence of orange with very old cognacs mainly from Grand Champagne, the most prestigious production area in the Cognac region.
